Featured Review

Current Employee - Manager Clinical Applications

I have been working at HCA Healthcare full-time for more than 3 years


The leaders care about investing in their people. Once you're in, they try to help navigate your career and growth. Leadership is expected to mentor people. Leadership awards and recognizes staff... regularly through Spot Awards, Star Awards, Fred of the Quarter awards, 365 Hero Awards, and even rewarding participants with gift cards during meetings (for participating in team building activities). The compensation is great, to include the benefits packages. They now offer to pay $150 per month towards your Student Loans (they don't deduct this from your check, it is extra money the company is giving away to your loan servicer). They have Adoption Assistance (they give you a big chunk of money to help you adopt), they offer Scholarships for the Children of Employees, Tuition Reimbursement, Stock Options, 401K, and so much more! People get promoted often. I absolutely feel blessed to have been selected to work for this company. They believe in Servant Leadership and constantly expect their leaders to develop. In addition, since HCA is so big, you can move to a different state and still stay with the same company but different Division.


It can be quite difficult to get hired. The application process/interview to job offer can sometimes take longer than a month.

High quality company with high standards of care and protection for workers. No other company provides employees with such great pay and amazing benefits. There are also many ways Kaiser can help... facilitate career progression if that is your goal.


Depending on your job you will work without flexibility every other weekend unless you request a vacation day.

Advice to Management

Manager close to staff have always been great for me. I cannot speak as well to senior management, although, at times it seems their decisions are based from 'afar' or purely on numbers.
